    Inspirational guide to maximizing your talent

    The professional sports world is filled with athletes who have extraordinary talent and yet end up with mediocre careers. Of course, every field has people who have failed to achieve their individual talent potential. Why? Talent alone is not remarkable. In fact, it is commonplace. What is special is "talent plus," the term leadership author John C. Maxwell uses to describe the achievement level of people who maximize their talents. Maxwell says you must add effort to talent to make it matter. He describes 13 sterling attributes people should strive to build within themselves to maximize their talents. getAbstract recommends his message to those who coach, mentor or encourage others. In any business or activity, Maxwell contends, talent "is only a starting point." How you develop your talent is what counts, and this book will show you how.

    I Also Recommend:

    You get way more than you initially expect, experiencing this book.

    This book was an interesting surprise filled with well presented insight, thought provoking views on life and success, and an outstanding use of appropriate quotes. I found myself keenly interested in the primary points presented; however, John tends to get a "tad" too detailed in his real life examples leading to a schlogdown in the reading experience.

    This book is 275 pages long consisting of 13 chapters. I realize his goal is to be as comprehensive on the subject as possible, yet this led to a feeling of being beat to death while making the primary point. I also noticed the book was laid out almost like an outline vs. a readable experience of discovery.

    Having said this, I never realized the discussion of Talent as it relates to success in life encompassed so many elements directly affecting our success. I recommend this book to anyone on a personal development journey open to new perspectives of how talent should be considered in all aspects of life. I feel it is time well invested and I will read the other books authored by John Maxwell.

    Great book! Easy read!

    This book was great. It was very inspirational. I found myself dog-earring most of the pages so I could flip back thru and revisit passages. Maxwell integrates stories and lessons into one. It is very applicable to anyone's life. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who needs some inspiration to do better, be better, or just feel better!
